Fund Raising Efforts

2004 CHALLENGE

For the past fourteen years, Theater in the Park has established itself as one of Denver’s premiere cultural entertainment opportunities. The 2004 season promises to be even more exciting and diverse as past seasons as we are planning to continue with theatrical productions as well as a series of musical concerts and other entertainment including children’s shows at the Denver Botanic Gardens. The Board of Directors currently faces the challenge of raising the necessary funds to bring this important project to life. The 2004 budget is only a conservative $110,140.00.

Corporate and foundation support continues to be a critical part of this equation.

With your help, Theater in the Park can continue to fulfill its mission of providing free summer theater for the entire community to enjoy. You can also help enrich the downtown area by providing exciting and lively entertainment at the newly restored and renovated Greek Amphitheatre in Civic Center Park which will preserve and utilize this historic site.

BENEFITS OF SPONSORSHIP

The corporate, foundation, government, media and individual sponsors who make Theater in the Park possible can be proud of the program they support. The summer series is created with great concern and care; the comfort and enjoyment of the audience is foremost in the planning process, and technicians and performing companies are selected for their professionalism and proven track records. This attention to quality and detail has contributed to an increase in audience numbers from each season to the next.

Sponsors are given prominent exposure, both to our audience members and to the general public by the following:

  • acknowledgement in free programs handed out at all performances and promotional flyers
  • mention in news releases (for gifts of $2,500 or more)
  • mention in print ads in the Denver Post (for gifts of $10,000 or more)
  • banner display at the Greek Amphitheatre
  • publicly spoken acknowledgements before each performance
  • consideration of special promotional requests

 

 

Sponsors have the satisfaction of knowing their contributions go directly toward providing quality, accessible, and free entertainment for residents of metropolitan Denver as well as the rest of the Front Range and not to administrative overhead costs. Theater in the Park is administered by a volunteer Board of Directors and Executive Director — along with a dedicated cadre of individual volunteers — keeping the organization’s administrative expenses to a minimum.
